New Sysco ‘super depot’ to serve South East region

22 Feb 2024
Foodservice wholesaler Sysco has announced plans to create its largest depot in Europe, which aims to offer a ‘next generation service’ to foodservice businesses across London and the South East of England.

Sysco is initially investing $100m in the new 475,000sq ft site. The new depot will add additional capacity to the existing network in the South East and aligns with Sysco’s ambition for growth in Great Britain.

The introduction of the depot will allow Sysco to store a larger range of fresh, frozen and ambient products locally, providing a faster response to customer demand. The new site will help contribute to the creation of 850 jobs and will be fully operational at the beginning of 2026.

Paul Nieduszynski, chief executive of Sysco GB, said: “The new Sysco London depot is a next generation site, unlike anything we’ve seen before. As the largest Sysco site in Europe, it will offer a more comprehensive service to independent customers in London and the surrounding areas. It takes foodservice wholesale in Britain to an entirely new level.

“For the first time, we will be able to introduce the full suite of technology that benefits Sysco customers in the United States. The size of the depot will also allow us to be more responsive to customer demand by holding a full range of products on the edge of Greater London. The combination of scale, cutting-edge technology, range and service will set a new standard for foodservice wholesale in the UK.”
